Game was decided by points in the end and Thorgal and me were the lucky(!) winners. The game really didn't look so good for us at that point. Thank you for the match personian and sleeping dog I'm sorry it ended like this for you. I believe you had good chances to win this if it would have continued.

It seems Fluksen and Thorgal had such a big lead that even the losses in the last few turns meant they were ahead.

Please report the game so that we can move to round 5.

Ha, I was actually expecting we'd win thanks to that big battle won by SleepingDog a few turns ago...but there's a lot I don't know about prospective strengths,etc.  Yeah, it's a shame we had such a slow moving game.  Thorgal & I were just starting to butt heads, knocking off each other's scouts, with Thorgal getting closer with a serious stack and myself in position to meet it. 

Regardless, though, I certainly accept the results.   I think the game was very much in question when it ended, but that's the nature of these timed tournament games I guess. ;-)  

Good luck in the next round!

Really could you also look at the map or just the score? I made a huge misplay loosing my leader, half my army and my production city in the process <smiletext6> 4 turns ago. I was pretty sure that cost us the game, glad it didn't but on the other side it makes me feel a bit bad for our opponents because I think they really brought us into a pinch. We still had somewhat ok armies, probably a better economy (at least thorgal) and we got both dwellings but Sleeping dog was right in my face and could certainly take at least one more of my cities. I was pretty much outpositioned. If I had to make a guess I would not bet on Thorgal and my team...
Well played Sleeping Dog and personian. Sorry it ended this way!

EDIT: the initial message I posted here was for another game blog, sorry. So here is what I wanted to post here:

Jonny, Skuns and me analysed the scores and Fluksen & Thorgal gets the victory by score. It is unfortunate the game did not move further than turn 26 though.

Please prepare for round 5, so that it starts quickly and we avoid such a situation...

I sent the screenshots to Hiliadan.

The last player is sleeping dog and it should be his turn.

I see that you read my posts carefully because nobody told me I had copied the wrong timestamp... I copied the start date and not the end date (2019-10-26 9:31 PM +02:00).

So the round is finished. Please confirm whose turn it is and @the last player in the strategic turn, please confirm you've read and understood the instructions. You need to take screenshots of ALL the scores (and send only to judges, by PM on the BF) and DO NOT send the turn to the next player.

Hi guys!
This round ends in less than 2 days at 2019-07-13 9:31 PM UTC +02:00. So unfortunately, it seems it means after Fluksen comes back, this is the last turn...

Who is the last player in the strategic turn?
That player has to follow these instructions:

1/ AFTER the deadline, the strategic turn is played until the last player in the turn order
2/ that player plays his turn, saves & quits, copy the save game to a backup folder
3/ that player re-enters the game and surrenders, then takes screenshots of all the scores (general, domain, research, military, happiness) . He does NOT end the turn. Instead he quits the game without ending the turn.
4/ he sends the screenshots to judges (Jonny Thunder and me + Skuns as temporary judge for this game)
5/ judges check the scores and take a decision

Please let me know if this is unclear.

Hei I am very sorry but I'll be travelling through Japan next week (from the 21st to the 27th) I will not take my computer with me so I won't be able to do any turns in that time <smiletext6>

12+ days left until end of round. This game has been very slow, I hope it somehow speeds up before the end.

Good luck for the last turns!

We are at turn 19.

Hi! What turn have you reached?

Published on Mon, 23 Sep 2019 16:56:13 +0200

Hei all,
I'll be quite busy for the next three month and I don't even know if I'll have internet from Wednesday to Sunday. So please excuse when my turns take a bit longer. But speaking of which @Sleeping dog, it's your turn for quite a few days now already. Please write when you are away for longer periods like this...

Published on Tue, 10 Sep 2019 22:27:31 +0200

That should be only for the turn of the crash. So please do remove debug mode for that turn then re-activate it for the following turns.

Published on Tue, 10 Sep 2019 19:43:43 +0200

I can not play the game in the debug-mode. If I disable the debug-mode I could play. 
What should I do?

Published on Mon, 09 Sep 2019 23:52:03 +0200

Hi! Thorgal gets a warning for reload with adequate proof as what he sent was judged sufficient.
You can continue.

Published on Sun, 08 Sep 2019 17:04:59 +0200


The files shared looks sufficient.
I will send an email to the other judges and confirm.

Please wait to make your turn until green light.

Thank you.

Published on Sun, 08 Sep 2019 16:51:17 +0200

The game has crashed. I have attached some files here. Can I do more? Can I repeat the turn?

What explains that? The announced vacations did not go that far into August....You really need to pick up speed.

Hi! We have everyone's class/race.
I know some of you are on holidays and can't play as usual but it would be great if you managed to start the game and even 1 or 2 turns played is still good. <smiletext0>

Good luck & have fun!

Btw, I"ll also be on vacation for about 2.5 weeks in August.  I'll have my laptop and will do my best to get moves in quickly, but I won't be available all the time.  I guess we'll all do our best to get through July & August... ;-)

I'm on vaction for the next 2 weeks, from today on. 

Means that we have to play the first 2 weeks without the turn timer, because I'm probably won't be able to do my turn everyday.
